About to start outdoor grow

Ok, so I’m about to start2 seed for a outdoor grow I will keep them in side for first 3 or 4 weeks then they will go outside so my main question is bugs can I just surround it with diatamasious earth and that will take care of bugs or will I need other things @AAA @Big123 I plan to dig big hole fill with good dirt then put directly in ground

so what size container will be good for the first 4 weeks of veg inside

Diatomaceous Earth is a great choice. RAZOR sharp to insects. Diluted with water to spray, or sprinkle lightly.:wink::sunglasses:

If you want to go big, minimum 10 gallon. preferred wild be 20 gallon plus.

Just for first 4 weeks

I got a big hole to fill good dirt

You can start in plastic cups with a few holes drilled in bottom. I would use seed starter mix soil if possible for best germination rates. You can repot in the something bigger if they grow fast before you put them in the earth.

Autos white widdow 2 of them

I wouldn’t use plastic cups for autos unless they were 5 gallons, go 5 gallon if possible, maybe 1 or 2 gallons would work?

What sort of lights are you putting them under indoor?

Neem oil. Diluted and spray every other week outdoors until flower. Do not spray when flowering
